Atlanta - the capital of the U.S. state of Georgia is a city of industry with 4 million residents. The transition from the old to the new Southern style is easy to see in Atlanta. Some residential areas still consist of picturesque Georgian style houses, while just a few streets over modern skyscrapers rise toward the sky. For example, the 14 storey Omni megastructure contains offices, a hotel, international boutiques, six cinemas, a skating rink and other athletic facilities. Underground Atlanta, a restored four-block areas, is located near the business center.
On Washington Street at Capitol Square you can visit Georgia's State Capitol, the Georgia Hall of Fame and the Hall of Flags. One of the city's most famous residents is buried in Ebenezer Baptist Church: the American civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Martin Luther King. In Grant Park you can visit the Atlanta Zoo and the restored Confederate Fort Walker and view the 123 m painting of the Battle of Atlanta. The 5 m long whale sharks are the main attraction at the Georgia Aquarium. They live in a pool of 30,000 m3 saltwater.
Just 24 km east of Atlanta is Stone Mountain. Three likenesses of the Confederate heroes Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and "Stonewall" Jackson have been chiseled into the granite cliffs. In the former mining town of Dahlonega you can pan for gold yourself. The historical village of Madison survived the Civil War intact. The nearby Pine Mountains region is known for the Callaway Gardens and the Little White House of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in Warm Springs.
